Drupal 6 security update for Password Policy module

by David Snopek on December 5, 2018 - 1:59pm

As you may know, Drupal 6 has reached End-of-Life (EOL) which means the Drupal Security Team is no longer doing Security Advisories or working on security patches for Drupal 6 core or contrib modules - but the Drupal 6 LTS vendors are and we're one of them!

Today, there is a Less Critical security release for the Password Policy  module to fix a Denial of Service (DoS) vulnerability.

The Password Policy module makes it possible to set constraints on user passwords.

The "digit placement" constraint is vulnerable to Denial of Service attacks if an attacker submits specially crafted passwords.

See the security advisory for Drupal 7 for more information.

Here you can download the Drupal 6 patch.

If you have a Drupal 6 site using the Password Policy module, we recommend you update immediately! We have already deployed the patch for all of our Drupal 6 Long-Term Support clients. :-)

If you'd like all your Drupal 6 modules to receive security updates and have the fixes deployed the same day they're released, please check out our D6LTS plans.

Note: if you use the myDropWizard module (totally free!), you'll be alerted to these and any future security updates, and will be able to use drush to install them (even though they won't necessarily have a release on Drupal.org).

Drupal 6 security update for Session Limit module

by David Snopek on October 31, 2018 - 1:28pm

As you may know, Drupal 6 has reached End-of-Life (EOL) which means the Drupal Security Team is no longer doing Security Advisories or working on security patches for Drupal 6 core or contrib modules - but the Drupal 6 LTS vendors are and we're one of them!

Today, there is a Critical security release for the Session Limit module to fix a Insecure Session Management vulnerability.

The session limit module enables a site administrator to set a policy around the number of active sessions users of the site may have.

The module does not sufficiently tokenise the list of sessions so that the user's session keys can be found through inspection of the form.

See the security advisory for Drupal 7 for more information.

Here you can download the Drupal 6 patch.

If you have a Drupal 6 site using the Session Limit module, we recommend you update immediately! We have already deployed the patch for all of our Drupal 6 Long-Term Support clients. :-)

If you'd like all your Drupal 6 modules to receive security updates and have the fixes deployed the same day they're released, please check out our D6LTS plans.

Note: if you use the myDropWizard module (totally free!), you'll be alerted to these and any future security updates, and will be able to use drush to install them (even though they won't necessarily have a release on Drupal.org).

Drupal 6 security update for Search Autocomplete module

by David Snopek on October 17, 2018 - 11:55pm

As you may know, Drupal 6 has reached End-of-Life (EOL) which means the Drupal Security Team is no longer doing Security Advisories or working on security patches for Drupal 6 core or contrib modules - but the Drupal 6 LTS vendors are and we're one of them!

Today, there is a Moderately Critical security release for the Search Autocomplete module to fix a Cross Site Scripting (XSS) vulnerability.

This Search Autocomplete module enables you to autocomplete textfield using data from your website.

The module doesn't sufficiently filter user-entered text among the autocompletion items leading to an XSS vulnerability.

See the security advisory for Drupal 7 for more information.

Here you can download the Drupal 6 patch.

Note: We only support the 6.x-2.x branch (we don't have any customers on the 6.x-4.x branch), so that's the only one we're going to do.

If you have a Drupal 6 site using the Search Autocomplete module, we recommend you update immediately! We have already deployed the patch for all of our Drupal 6 Long-Term Support clients. :-)

If you'd like all your Drupal 6 modules to receive security updates and have the fixes deployed the same day they're released, please check out our D6LTS plans.

Note: if you use the myDropWizard module (totally free!), you'll be alerted to these and any future security updates, and will be able to use drush to install them (even though they won't necessarily have a release on Drupal.org).

Drupal 6 security update for Lightbox2 module

by David Snopek on October 10, 2018 - 12:40pm

As you may know, Drupal 6 has reached End-of-Life (EOL) which means the Drupal Security Team is no longer doing Security Advisories or working on security patches for Drupal 6 core or contrib modules - but the Drupal 6 LTS vendors are and we're one of them!

Today, there is a Critical security release for the Lightbox2  module to fix a Cross Site Scripting (XSS) vulnerability.

The Lightbox2 module enables you to overlay images on the current page.

The module did not sanitize some inputs when used in combination with a custom View leading to potential XSS.

See the security advisory for Drupal 7 for more information.

Here you can download the Drupal 6 patch.

If you have a Drupal 6 site using the Lightbox2 module, we recommend you update immediately! We have already deployed the patch for all of our Drupal 6 Long-Term Support clients. :-)

If you'd like all your Drupal 6 modules to receive security updates and have the fixes deployed the same day they're released, please check out our D6LTS plans.

Note: if you use the myDropWizard module (totally free!), you'll be alerted to these and any future security updates, and will be able to use drush to install them (even though they won't necessarily have a release on Drupal.org).

Drupal 6 security update for Print module (CRITICAL!)

by David Snopek on October 3, 2018 - 4:30pm

As you may know, Drupal 6 has reached End-of-Life (EOL) which means the Drupal Security Team is no longer doing Security Advisories or working on security patches for Drupal 6 core or contrib modules - but the Drupal 6 LTS vendors are and we're one of them!

Today, there is a Critical security release for the Print module to fix a Remote Code Execution (RCE) vulnerability.

The Print module provides printer-friendly versions of content, including send by e-mail and PDF versions.

The module doesn't sufficiently sanitize the arguments passed to the wkhtmltopdf executable, or HTML passed to dompdf or other PDF generation tools.

See the security advisory for Drupal 7 for more information.

NOTE: This vulnerability has a lower risk in Drupal 6 than in Drupal 7 (where it's Highly Critical). This is because you can't pass shell commands to execute using the HTTP basic auth user/pass, like you can in Drupal 7.

Here you can download the Drupal 6 patch.

If you have a Drupal 6 site using the Print module, we recommend you update immediately! We have already deployed the patch for all of our Drupal 6 Long-Term Support clients. :-)

If you'd like all your Drupal 6 modules to receive security updates and have the fixes deployed the same day they're released, please check out our D6LTS plans.

Drupal 6 security update for XML sitemap (6.x-2.x only)

by David Snopek on July 18, 2018 - 2:42pm

As you may know, Drupal 6 has reached End-of-Life (EOL) which means the Drupal Security Team is no longer doing Security Advisories or working on security patches for Drupal 6 core or contrib modules - but the Drupal 6 LTS vendors are and we're one of them!

Today, there is a Moderately Critical security release for the XML sitemap module (version 6.x-2.x only) to fix an Information Disclosure vulnerability.

The XML sitemap module enables you to generate XML sitemaps and it helps search engines to more intelligently crawl a website and keep their results up to date.

The module doesn't sufficiently handle access rights under the scenario of updating contents from cron execution.

See the security advisory for Drupal 7 for more information.

Here you can download the Drupal 6 patch.

If you have a Drupal 6 site using the XML sitemap module, we recommend you update immediately! We have already deployed the patch for all of our Drupal 6 Long-Term Support clients. :-)

If you'd like all your Drupal 6 modules to receive security updates and have the fixes deployed the same day they're released, please check out our D6LTS plans.

Note: if you use the myDropWizard module (totally free!), you'll be alerted to these and any future security updates, and will be able to use drush to install them (even though they won't necessarily have a release on Drupal.org).

Drupal 6 security update for Generate Password!

by David Snopek on June 27, 2018 - 2:06pm

As you may know, Drupal 6 has reached End-of-Life (EOL) which means the Drupal Security Team is no longer doing Security Advisories or working on security patches for Drupal 6 core or contrib modules - but the Drupal 6 LTS vendors are and we're one of them!

Today, there is a Less Critical security release for the Generate Password module to fix an Insecure Randomness vulnerability.

The Generate Password modules allows administrators to create a new user account without setting a password, allowing the system to automatically generate one. The module doesn't use a strong source of randomness, creating weak and predictable passwords.

See the security advisory for Drupal 7 for more information.

Here you can download the Drupal 6 patch.

If you have a Drupal 6 site using the Generate Password module, we recommend you update immediately! We have already deployed the patch for all of our Drupal 6 Long-Term Support clients. :-)

If you'd like all your Drupal 6 modules to receive security updates and have the fixes deployed the same day they're released, please check out our D6LTS plans.

Note: if you use the myDropWizard module (totally free!), you'll be alerted to these and any future security updates, and will be able to use drush to install them (even though they won't necessarily have a release on Drupal.org).

Critical Drupal core security update for SA-CORE-2018-004 (including Drupal 6!)

by David Snopek on April 25, 2018 - 11:53am

Today, there is a Critical security release for Drupal core to fix a Remote Code Execution (RCE) vulnerability. You can learn more in the security advisory:

Drupal core - Critical - Remote Code Execution - SA-CORE-2018-004

This issue also affects Drupal 6 (although, less severely than Drupal 7 or 8). So, we're also making a Drupal 6 Long-Term Support (D6LTS) release of Drupal core and the Filefield module.

Drupal 6 core security update

As you may know, Drupal 6 has reached End-of-Life (EOL) which means the Drupal Security Team is no longer doing Security Advisories or working on security patches for Drupal 6 core or contrib modules - but the Drupal 6 LTS vendors are and we're one of them!

This fix is both for Drupal 6 core and the Filefield module. This is because the Drupal 7 & 8 fixes include changes to the core 'file' module, which isn't in Drupal 6 core, but an equivalent fix applies to the Filefield module.

Here you can download:

If you have a Drupal 6 site, we recommend you update immediately! We have already deployed the patch for all of our Drupal 6 Long-Term Support clients. :-)

If you'd like all your Drupal 6 modules to receive security updates and have the fixes deployed the same day they're released, please check out our D6LTS plans.

Note: if you use the myDropWizard module (totally free!), you'll be alerted to these and any future security updates, and will be able to use drush to install security updates for contrib modules (even though they won't necessarily have a release on Drupal.org).

HIGHLY CRITICAL Drupal core security update for SA-CORE-2018-002 (including Drupal 6!)

by David Snopek on March 28, 2018 - 2:25pm

Today, there is a Highly Critical security release for Drupal core to fix a Remote Code Execution (RCE) vulnerability. You can learn more in the security advisory:

Drupal core - Critical - Remote Code Execution - SA-CORE-2018-002

As we noted last week, this issue also affects Drupal 6! So, we're also making a Drupal 6 Long-Term Support (D6LTS) release of Drupal core.

Drupal 6 core security update

As you may know, Drupal 6 has reached End-of-Life (EOL) which means the Drupal Security Team is no longer doing Security Advisories or working on security patches for Drupal 6 core or contrib modules - but the Drupal 6 LTS vendors are and we're one of them!

Here you can download the Drupal 6 patch to fix, or a full release ZIP or TAR.GZ.

If you have a Drupal 6 site, we recommend you update immediately! We have already deployed the patch for all of our Drupal 6 Long-Term Support clients. :-)

If you'd like all your Drupal 6 modules to receive security updates and have the fixes deployed the same day they're released, please check out our D6LTS plans.

Note: if you use the myDropWizard module (totally free!), you'll be alerted to these and any future security updates, and will be able to use drush to install security updates for contrib modules (even though they won't necessarily have a release on Drupal.org).

Drupal 6 security update for Custom Permissions!

by David Snopek on February 14, 2018 - 4:57pm

As you may know, Drupal 6 has reached End-of-Life (EOL) which means the Drupal Security Team is no longer doing Security Advisories or working on security patches for Drupal 6 core or contrib modules - but the Drupal 6 LTS vendors are and we're one of them!

Today, there is a Moderately Critical security release for the Custom Permissions module to fix an Access Bypass vulnerability.

This module enables the user to set custom permissions per path.

The module doesn't perform sufficient checks on paths with dynamic arguments (like "node/1" or "user/2"), thereby allowing the site administrator to save custom permissions for paths that won't be protected. This could lead to an access bypass vulnerability if the site is relying on the Custom Permissions module to protect those paths.

After applying this patch, go to the "Site Configuration Permissions" page and click "Save". If the form saves without errors, your site isn't vulnerable. If you get an error, delete the permission or correct the patch per the information in the error.

See the security advisory for Drupal 7 for more information.

Here you can download the Drupal 6 patch.

If you have a Drupal 6 site using the Custom Permissions module, we recommend you update immediately! We have already deployed the patch for all of our Drupal 6 Long-Term Support clients. :-)

If you'd like all your Drupal 6 modules to receive security updates and have the fixes deployed the same day they're released, please check out our D6LTS plans.

Note: if you use the myDropWizard module (totally free!), you'll be alerted to these and any future security updates, and will be able to use drush to install them (even though they won't necessarily have a release on Drupal.org).
